Tom McGovern "Your Santa Monica Dog Trainer"

Tom McGovernTom McGovern is proud to bring Off Leash K9 Training to Santa Monica, California!

Off Leash K9 Training is one of the most reputable dog training businesses in the nation. We are known for bringing police/military precision obedience to household dogs,100% off-leash.

We have close to 500 before/after videos on YouTube of dogs of every breed, shape, and size.

Just hours after graduating high school Tom found himself entering the gates of Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. Tom was primarily based out of Camp Pendleton, California.

During his time in the Marine Corps, Tom deployed to Okinawa Japan twice to partake in operations at sea and also served in two combat deployments to Iraq in 2003 and 2005.

Due to his extensive knowledge in dog training, Tom's friends and co-workers would often ask for his help in training their own dogs. Tom found himself spending hours researching private dog training companies, the methods they use, and reputations they hold. It wasn't until he came across Off Leash K9 Training that he was truly impressed and intrigued with their training style.

Tom spent countless hours of one-on-one training and mentoring with Nick White which resulted in mastering the techniques and methodology that has resulted in OLK9's extraordinary success.

In 2013, Tom left his 12 years of military service to pursue his passion of training dogs full-time.

Tom is thrilled to be the one that turns your ordinary household pet into a military/police precision obedient rock star that has your neighbors asking “How can I get my dog that well behaved?"
